Sub: Unfair practices at fair price shops-Regarding

Respected sir,

Through the columns of your esteemed daily I appeal to the concerned ministry to look into the matter and take steps to alleviate poor people’s troubles.

I am writing to you to express my deep concern over the unfair practices going on so flagrantly at the Government owned fair price shops across Bangalore. These shops were opened by the State Government to provide commodities of basic needs to poor people at very reasonable prices. The painful truth is these shops have become the epicenter of corrupt practices. The unscrupulous officials and authorities running these shops are selling the commodities at higher rates and reaping huge benefits through corrupt and unfair practices.

The prices of essential commodities such as pulses, vegetables, cereals, cooking oil, sugar, rice, and petrol, etc. have been rising unrelentingly. These fair price shops were the only hope of relief for the poor; but they too have failed to provide relief to the poor!

The Government authorities must act strictly against the corrupt officials running these fair price shops. The people should also raise their voice against the malpractices!

Thanking you,

Yours truly,
